Just looking at the fixtures by MAlcD

Hyde play 5 games in 11 days, 4 of which are away.

I feel a tad more optimistic about automatic promotion knowing that.

I actually think we’ve got more bottle than Hyde, and I hope that proves the case. Remember last season? We had to win all eight to stand a chance of the playoffs. We did.

We have that experience, albeit with a mostly changed team, but SK has been there and done it. Hyde’s PR department has been “willy-waving" (for want of a better term) for weeks about how they’re on track for a fantastic season, and posting screenshots of league tables. We are just getting on with it. Colne and Colwyn Bay are tough, tough fixtures, but if we HAD to win them, would we? Yes. I think we would. Look at South Shields away. Billed as a massive top of the table clash, and even then it was seen as a game not to be lost to avoid letting them go miles clear. We went there and won. Game plan worked, tactics worked, performance pulled out of the bag.

I trust us away at Colwyn Bay and Colne more than I’d trust Hyde to get something at Atherton on a Monday night or on a poor Radcliffe pitch on a Thursday.

I might be wrong, and if Hyde win all their games, they will deserve to go up in 2nd.

Anybody able to answer this, cos I can’t. by Old Git

Posted: 9/4/2018 at 13:19:05, 124 views.

back in the 1966-67 season the team was selelcted by committee
as after the departure of Stuart Myers no new manager was appointed.
That much I know and I have the names of the committee members.
what I want to know is, who took charge of the team on match days
and sat with the trainer (probably Alec Betton) on the bench.
Who was the guy who did the Warnock wave, the turn and mutter under the breath
before the shout of ‘are you blind ref?’.
Who was the guy who provided the half-time ‘hairblower’?
I can’t imagine the selection committee crowding into the dressing room at half-time
they’d have been tucking into prawn sandwiches, pork pies and slurping some of the
finest P.G. Tips.

I’m glad someone could answer that.
I saw Jimmy Weir earlier today and thought I’d ask him
as he was in the squad that season, if I got no response on here.
Now I don’t have to shuffle up to him like Eamon Andrews on This Is Your Life.
Haven’t seen Harry Dunn for years apart from the Colin Appleton night at the Corporation Club
on Dean Road.
It was that season that Harry Dunn (I knew Harry from the school footy team at Westwood)
& someone with him, not Peter Flynn, shouted up through the railings at me while I was playing for Scarborough Tech
on Hinderwell in the minor league, and invited me down to training for a trial at Boro the following Tuesday.
Unfortunately I broke my ankle on the same Hinderwell pitch the next day, during a kickabout
with mates from Edgehill. The same ankle & injury that gives me trouble now & for every winter for
the last 10 years.
That was the end of my career as I didn’t get fit again until September the following year.
Anyway thanks again for answering that little query.

good to know he still gets to games.
Great player for Boro over the many seasons he was in the team.
I have a not very good black & white photo of him that I took during
some game at the Athletic Ground. I think it might have been his
first home game for the Reserves or even for the first team.
I know it’s Harry cos I took the photo but anyone else couldn’t tell
because he’s just inside the half way line with 3 or 4 players in the foreground,
in the penalty area.

RE: Remembering Harry by Old Git

I was in the 2 nd years when Harry was in the 4th.
I played for the 2nd years but one saturday as the
team bus was leaving to play Malton at 2nd & 4th year
Alan Smith the PE teacher came down the coach
slapped me on the shoulder and said ‘Your’re playing for the 4th years today.
So that’s how I got to play in the same team as Harry Dunn.
When we got to Malton there wa s4 or 5 inches of snow on the pitch
and I was outwide on the right wing. My job was to get the crosses over
for the 3 middle forwards. I did quite well. In the 2nd my first 3 crosses
were turned in for goals and my 4th was sliced and flew over the keeper into the net.
So I was quite pleased with my first and as it turned out, only game for the 4th years.
Well until the next season I played a few more games and we got to
the final of the Ryedale League Cup Sadly the final was never played
and we shared the trophy six montha apiece with canon slade school York.because of prolonged bad weather

As Hungry Jose pointed out much earlier, 13 points absolutely guarantees promotion one way or another. That’s if Cambridge City win every remaining point available to them.

Teams to play each other reduces max points possibilities by gomersal seadog User: gomersal seadog

Posted: 9/4/2018 at 14:29:33, 107 views. In reply to 'RE: ah get ya n/t'

For instance Dunstable v Cambridge City on saturday will knock one or both of these back from their max points potential ( 87 v 89 ) while both these teams still have to play current top of the league Rushton and Diamonds and all top 6 teams in this league have top 6 opposition still to play. Bostik South are likely to be highest ranked at the end of the season and they max at 86.74 with both Greenwich and Corinthians having tricky opposition still to play. Given our goal difference, 87 or less could well be enough, however, as Dave Merris said in his interview, one game at a time and 3 points at Radcliffe is our main focus

I think that’s right - the challenge from Evostik SE will undoubtedly be dented because of Cambridge and Dunstable playing each other and R&D. Dunstable play Beaconsfield too. None of the others in the reckoning play more than one ‘top’ team, some of them none at all. Agree, too, that 87 will probably do - realistically it will be likely that the top third place team will come from Boro, Cambridge City, Hartley & Wintney, AFC Dunstable, Greenwich Borough or Frickley. For one thing, I don’t see Boro getting fewer than 9 more points (86), which discounts any team below that maximum. Whatever happens with other teams we’ve got a couple of ‘get out of jail free’ cards up our sleeve.

Climate changew or what? by Cynic

Posted: 8/4/2018 at 17:46:42, 73 views. In reply to 'Matches seem to get postponed very easily these days!'

You’re probably right, but why is it so? Those of us brought up in the 70s will know the Athletic ground resembled a ploughed field for much of the winter, one reason why wingers were so important was that they were the only ones who had a half-decent surface to play on. However (any experts out there?) has climate change led to greater rain/flooded pitches? Certainly flooding of towns etc seems much more prevalent than it ever was.

I was having a similar discussion recently with someone about the flooding caused by the lake overflowing at Peasholm Park, because I used to live near there 40 years ago and I don’t remember it being a problem. We wondered if the increased amount of buildings and driveways etc. are causing rain water to run off more quickly, leading to more flooding.

Every house down Edgehill had big gardens and I noticed that with the rebuild
around Edgehill and Newcoln Roads former grassed areas and gardens now have a row of
houses and no garden.
If developments elsewhere are just as bad it’s no wonder local areas flood.

I just don’t buy this climate change bs. Well at least what IS happening is doing so naturally. There is a strong theory that the world has tilted somewhat which obviously affects the poles. Apparently the earth has actually cooled on average overall these past 20 years.
One of my theories about flooding is that many years ago the government (can’t remember which one but possibly Tories) gave grants for the hill farmers to drain the moors so that it gave more land for the sheep to graze. These ditches which were cut into the peat, just cut deeper with the flow of water until the chalk bed was reached. So now when it rains, instead of having a large sponge of peat which released the water gradually over several weeks, the ditches make rapid run off & hence swollen rivers and flooding. After a while the rivers then turn into a trickle because the sponge has been emptied. Also rivers don’t seem to be dredged anymore - they just silt up and the answer has been to build higher flood banks or barriers effectively raising the whole river at the detriment of bridges which now suffer more water pressure. The whole river has been raised but not the bridges. Think about it, but that’s my two penneth. :)

The natural way by Old Git

Posted: 9/4/2018 at 09:43:00, 52 views. In reply to 'RE:Climate change or what?'

A report has been released in the last week in Holland that shows that SHELL recognised that what they were doing was causing global warming back in the 1980s. Naturally they hid the report’s findings, in the way the tobacco industry tried to lie about cancer caused by smoking.
Global warming isn’t natural and is happening because of the continued use of fossil fuels
Local flooding can be dealt with in the manner you describe. As it is being attempted to prevent flooding in Pickering. Planting more trees and providing other ways of ensuring rainfall is allowed to seep into the land rather than gush down hillsides into rivers and so flood villages and towns. Again this flooding isn’t natural, it is a result of land use by landowners and farmers who through various strategies have removed trees, shrubs and grass from the land Either through damaging farming methods or for grouse moors. The effects of global warming happen gradually and over masive areas of land and sea.
Weather & climate are not the same and require different solutions to control and reduce effects.
The only people who seem not to publicly recognise the seriousness of global warming are those in the oil, gas & coal industries. To reduce global warming the world has to increase the use of wind, water and solar energy..
I’ve always preferred coming home to a coal fire and for the last 42 years have had to do with central heating that provides no emotional comfort at all.
Ever tried making toast or roasting spuds on a radiator. Nah! it’s rubbish although you can melt cheese on radiators and tell your friends you are involved in a major art project that is hush hush at the moment.
Suppose I should say I’m not a member of the Green Party although I did study Geology at degree level although that was when we’d just started to hear about Plate Tectonics, so well before Boro beat Wigan at Wembley in the F.A. Trophy which was a seismic event in itself, especially if Bert Garrow fell on you.

All good points in their own ways so thanks for inputs. On the muddy pitch thing why are modern pitches generally so much better? Back in the day even first division pitches (hello Baseball ground) were often a muddy morass. Has groundsmanship improved that much?

Didn’t they have a go at The Athletic Ground by Old Git

Posted: 9/4/2018 at 12:31:41, 59 views. In reply to 'RE: The natural way'

to solve the problems with mud.
I can remember players almost getting trapped around the halfway line.
I thought they put some sort of drainage in.
The Baseball Ground was a classic ‘glue factory’.
In the end I suppose it comes down to money to solve pitch problems
and in lots of cases clubs don’t have it and can’t gey their hands on it.
You have to look at clubs like Brid and at Trafford where they
have natural sand as a subsurface that aids drainage.
Had a word with the groundsman at Trafford and he said that was
why they rarely postponed games.
Not matter what the benefits of 3G & 4G pitches I still prefer the game to be played on grass.
All those different seasonal conditions make the game much more interesting
and players develop different skills to deal with them.
Worst pitch i played one was that one on the left as you head towards Burniston from Scalby.
Played on there when the bottom quarter of the pitch wa sunder 3 or 4 inches of freezing water,
absolutely ridiculous trying to play on that pitch.

Goole by filey1

Right result, absolute relief to come away with 3 PTS, at 1-1 I thought we would be driving home in disbelief! Unattractive game to watch, at times painful. Great performances by Mezza, Pricey and Wrighty. Brilliant goal by Vallo. Let’s hope he features in every game from now on.

Although Hyde’s game was postponed, we are just a single point behind. Tuesday another huge game, and won’t be as clear cut as the home game the other week. Still think we will scrape a win, then massive game against Brighouse on Saturday!

Don’t think the pitch was terribly conducive to getting the ball down and passing. Think that caused us quite a lot of trouble. Like you, I was fearing the worst at 1-1. Credit to SK though, he brought Jimmy on, changed things tactically and that made the difference.

Comparing Hyde and Boro fixtures seems we have a harder run in and would need one further win due to our goal difference. We are playing teams who are aiming for that last play off place.

At least our goal difference is only slightly worse than Hyde’s, whereas a few weeks ago it was significantly worse. So it is what it is - alarmingly close!

Recently & coming up we seem to be playing a few teams coming in to form after slow starts. eg Ossett Albion. Turning out a harder run in than I first thought. Still some twists & turns to come I feel but Bamber appear to have blown it. 2nd place still possible and as long as we don’t lose more than 2 then final 3rd spot SHOULD be on. Exciting finish to season ahead but lets not think Radcliffe will be easy just because we beat them at home. They missed an absolute sitter to go ahead 2-1 & the game could easily have turned out differently

from the free kick in the first half.
I had a good bit of video of it and for some reason didn’t include it.
Too late to do owt about it as I’ve deleted all my original video.

By the way if you search You Tube you will find another piece of video
from yesterday’s match. At around 8 mins in it shows the kerfuffle
in the small stand after Goole equalised.
In normal speed & then in slow mo you can see who got punched
and who did the punching.
Might be useful for Goole to identify the puncher & ban him.

If you can’t find the video you can always try this link

Today’s game by seadog365 User: seadog365

Posted: 7/4/2018 at 19:06:20, 144 views.

It was another nervy one for the sizeable Boro contingent who had made the trip down the A614. We got an early lead which should have settled the nerves but then couldn’t find the killer touch after that on another difficult pitch. It was always a toss up as to which of Sinclair or Curtis scored against us, and in the end it was Nathan. All looked bleak until the other Nathan popped up with a SCREAMER and the team ran to celebrate with the fans by the side of the athletics track. Then when we won a penalty and Coulo confidently tucked it away it was game, set and match, the first time we’d had a cushion in the whole game. The other results elsewhere only adding to the collective joy in the Boro camp.

Now we have to it again against a Radcliffe side who will be properly rested, having not played since we beat them on Easter Saturday!!

Was a strange decision to have white and the new lad not even on the bench, am guessing injured or am hoping giving a rest for Tuesday?… we look a little weak on the bench. Am glad Hewit went to right back today… I noticed today how much Hume is involved in the game with SK just playing a watching role. Would like to see SK a little more active and passion.

Yeah I’m pretty sure White, Dawson and Johnson were all being rested just like Valentine had been previously - with so many games coming thick and fast it really is a balancing act between getting out a side who can win the game and making sure the players don’t over-exert themselves and become too tired.

Yes, having listened back to SK’s interview, he confirmed that JJ was injured, but was hopeful he might be OK for Tuesday so it doesn’t sound too serious, but I did indeed fear the worst when Cadders limped off the other night, he really has had no luck with injuries this season.
